What’s with the fake background?

Anthony Martin says:

I have a 60/2.8 and a 100/2.8 with IS. Of the two, the 100 is my fave due to the greater working distance and the IS. It also serves as a portrait lens on FF and crop.

Jesus Samaniego says:

I just got one for 40 us dollars plus 200 pesos more here in Tijuana Mexico,the extra 200 pesos where for the guy to get closer to me it is equal to like 10 dollars,so i paid about 50 dollars for mine.

German Andres Moreno Rojas says:

this is my fav lens for portraits, unmatched sharpness, close range focus is really great… did I mention how damn sharp it is?

K. D. says:

I love this lens, but kinda wish I had a 90 – 100 mm or the Sigma 150 macro:

MeanGrain says:

I use this lens with a 2x tele-converter and it’s pretty sweet.

dunnymonster says:

I have the G version of this lens and agree it’s a great lens. I would say in terms of macro specifically I prefer to use either my Tamron 90mm or Sigma 105mm just because I find I’m too close to the subject at 60 mm focal length. So if I were buying this for macro only I’d steer towards a longer focal length. It does a great job of portraiture and I’ve used my 60 mm many times, however 60 mm is a bit long in my opinion ( especially on DX ) as a walk about lens for street photography.

Nikko Corpus says:

90mm tamron f2.8VC

John J says:

OMG I made a video . 60 mm is short for a macro but I think it’s great all around as I said.

Thanks, made my day

theNOVABUSfan says:

Especially lately, I’ve been considering the 60mm AF-D to replace my 50mm 1.8 G. My 50 has an issue where it won’t open all the way up to f/1.8, and for portraiture, I wouldn’t mind that extra reach on my APS-C camera (trusty D7100).

vuel987 says:

the tokina 100 is awesome. yes i am always editing out the chromatic aberration with ease, but the bang for your buck is there. I have heard amazing things about the 60D but have you considered the 55mm 2.8 macro D? its all about the legacy.

ds.techie says:

Agreed to both Matt and dunnymonster

Gabriel B says:

I bought the Tokina 100mm 2.8 macro and man is this lens SHARP, also good as a portrait lens. used on a D200 and D7200
